I've got 18,000 words written for Neutral Ground. Not bad for a few days' work, I think. My brain's starting to get a little crispy, though. I may have to slow my roll for a day or two.
Another author has read the first few chapters of Hostile Planet and praised it. That's encouraging. I have self-confidence issues, and encouragement helps tremendously.
I've had to build a space navy from scratch along the way. I've got the following classes of ships in the Agrarian Commonwealth Navy at the start of the series:
I've got armament listed for each, and the ranking of each ship type's commanding officer, but that's it. No further details. I'll add more as necessary, but I don't want to get bogged down in minutiae.
Once I get this draft done, I'll be mired in revision for a while. Probably until publication. *shrug* We'll see.
